GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A man from El Salvador was sentenced to 50 years in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The Grayson County District Attorney's Office says 35-year-old Carlos Alberto Portillo was sentenced after a plea agreement was reached.

They say back in December Sherman Police received a call that he had sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl.

The DA's office says the girl had told her grandmother that Portillo had been having sexual contact with her for several weeks.

Portillo had originally denied the allegations but then later confessed and apologized.

He is eligible for parole after 25 years.
